January 13, 2016, New York, NY – On Friday February 12, sweetheart promoter Joe Fiore will bring FURBALL, his infamously fun New York City dance party, to The Heretic for its big ol’ Atlanta debut. A fun and frisky gay dance party propelled by world class DJs, FURBALL is open to all–bears, cubs, leather daddies, hipsters and those who love them.
Toronto’s DJ Barry Harris will headline FURBALL Atlanta. Previous DJs have included Frankie Knuckles, Hifi Sean, Paul Goodyear, and Hex Hector.
Now in it’s 12th year, the wildly popular FURBALL party has spread from NYC to become a sold-out destination event during major gay party weekends across the country. FURBALLs reliably sell out during Fire Island’s Bear Weekend, Provincetown Bear Week, New Orlean’s Southern Decadence and Chicago’s IML/Bear Pride Weekend (above). 2016 sees not only the Atlanta debut, but also first ever FURBALL parties in Dallas, Washington, DC (Jan 15 with MAL and Honcho) and, later this year, London.
Back home, Joe Fiore’s FURBALL party is the longest running bear nightlife event in New York City, if not the country, originally created as a fundraiser for the NYC LGBT Center, for which he’s helped raise over $500,000 to date.
With over 40 #1 Billboard Dance Chart hits, Toronto-based DJ Barry Harris knows how to rock a dancefloor. In addition to remixing numerous pop stars–among them Adele, Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, and Sia–Harris has written and produced numerous club anthems, including the now classic “Dive Into the Pool” by Pepper Mashy.
Harris is known to many for his work as half of the go-to remix team, Thunderpuss (with Chris Cox).
DJ gigs regularly see Harris jetting off to cities as far flung as Tel Aviv, Miami, San Francisco, Montreal, Sydney, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Los Angeles, NYC, Chicago, Seattle and, ta-dah, Atlanta, to which he returns on February 12.
